Rangers Roundup: Ready for Philly and is Nylander about to re-sign with Toronto?
Latest on the Rangers and news from around the web.
Nylander Off the Market?
There seems to be rumblings that Nylander is about to agree to terms with Toronto. It started yesterday and is continuing on into the afternoon. First from former NHLer, Marc Savard.
Then Mike Babcock had this to say:
Mike Babcock on William Nylander negotiations: “I’m confident, hopeful. I mean Willy loves hockey. I know Willy good — he’s a great teammate and a good person — and he loves hockey. He wants to play hockey. So I’m betting on that. How’s that?”

And a fan in Columbus caught up with Leafs GM, Kyle Dubas who may have given him a scoop before the Leafs take on the Jackets.
BREAKING: Just spoke with @MapleLeafs GM Kyle Dubas and asked about where they stand on William Nylander. His response was “I’ll have an update by 5pm.” Something tells me a resolve in the Nylander situation is close. #Nylander #MapleLeafs pic.twitter.com/Au0Zwyi7k8

Rangers Ready For the Flyers
Quinn said Lundqvist starts tomorrow in Philly. They hope Zuccarello can play, and Zuccarello said he felt pretty good after a full practice. If not, 7 D or call-up possible. #NYR

DQ says @HLundqvist30 will play tomorrow. No announcement on who will play in goal Saturday. Lundqvist could do both, he said. McLeod is probably out, 4-6 weeks, similar to Buchnevich. No callup from @WolfPackAHL as of right now – the hope is @zuccarello36 will be able to play.
